  • Author: Jaime Hartman

  • Yield: 4 1x


Simplicity and flavor combine for a “faster than takeout” shrimp and asparagus stir fry! Because this comes together so quickly, be sure you prep all of the ingredients before you start cooking.


  • 8 ounces fresh asparagus
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 pound medium raw shrimp, deveined and shell removed


  1. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus stalks and then cut the remaining into 2 inch segments.
  2. Peel and thinly slice or mince the garlic cloves.
  3. Finely chop the cilantro leaves.
  4. In a large skillet or wok over high heat, heat the avocado oil until it is shimmering. Add shrimp and garlic, toss once and then allow to cook undisturbed for just 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add asparagus and cook until shrimp are uniformly pink and cooked through, stirring every few seconds. This will take about 3-4 more minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Taste and add a pinch of salt if desired.
  7. Serve.
